Hi all,

First, thanks to all of you [1] for participating in this project to modernize the Chairs Guide. I really really appreciate. I also am
enthusiastic about the project because I think people will appreciate the results and find them useful. 

We had our first teleconf today with Olivier, Virginie, Coralie, and me (minutes [2]). The next call will be:

   Monday 24 September, 9am ET

I have set up a tracker instance [3] and started populating it with action items. I also updated our wiki [4] with information based
on the discussion today, which I will summarize here:

 - We talked about scope. There are many things that would benefit groups/chairs: tools, training, documentation, agile processes, etc.
   The scope of this project is documentation.
 - We have a starting point for a table of contents based on a project led by Jeff Jaffe during the summer [5]. We want confirmation that
   this structure will be useful for helping groups get work done. To that end:
    a) Virginie is going to review it and suggest any changes. Others are welcome to review it as well.
    b) We are going to start interviewing group chairs to see if it meets their needs, or if not what would. Olivier is writing up questions for
        us to interview chairs.
 - We also have the existing Guide content. Coralie and I are going to gather URIs for all the resources and start going through it. Charles
   (in a previous meeting) had also suggested that we put links into the Project_Management_Training to see what we have or what we are
   missing. I think we can combine those two actions. I will discuss further with Coralie.

We plan to have a TPAC breakout session where we share with people the results of our first phase. We will make adjustments based
on that feedback and then continue to add content through the end of the year.

Feel free to add additional thoughts to the wiki. I'll be hanging out on IRC on #guide.
